what does it take

I would like to get a pretty good amount of black smoke. I have a 5" straight pipe exhaust and a Ts chip and i was wondering what else do i have to do. I know that bigger injectors will do a good job of it, but i don't really have the money for that right now. i wasn't sure if there was anything i could do, or if i have to wait and get injectors.

RIP.......

You could put a rag over your air filter. If all you want is smoke then that'll be your best and cheapest way to do it.

if you wanting your truck to smoke longer get a low stall torque converter and a big a** turbo. that way it takes for ever to spool. but i would go with the injectors. that way you get a little power increase

smoke is bad, its unburnt fuel which means you're running inefficiently. The fact you don't have smoke means you're doing a good job at burning all your fuel completely. .. and probably getting good mileage too.

now, to the question. You have small injectors, you have way less fuel than the air coming into the engine, you will never smoke that much. . .even w/a smoke tune. The only way to make smoke is reduce the amount of air going into the engine. . .a good boost leak would probably help things out. Maybe drill and tap the wye feeding from the turbo into the engine and put a valve on it. . .you could open it when you want to make smoke.

Really though, anything you do to make your truck smoke will reduce the power. Smoke doesn't make power. The guys running big injectors and big turbos have smoke only cause we dont' have as much air as we'd like to be getting. . .that's why some have choosen compound turbos to clean things up, others have choosen NOS, and others are waitning for the money to do one of the above. Do your diesel brethren a favor, save the smoke for the track, smoking on the street just gives us all a bad name.

Didn't Andrew try this once? But he tried putting it on the inside of the filter. . . i'm not sure which would be more productive? :
